I am back in Florida. The past 7-8 days have really been a whirlwind, but somehow I managed to get it all done. My students finished their artwork and took it all home...I packed up my personal classroom items and also the whole art room and moved it to the storage area for the new art teacher and new art room for next year (that will be addressed in a future blog post...lot's of changes!)...we made it to NC safely, stopping in Jacksonville to visit John's friend Sean, 'the world's most interesting man'...I made some 'live art' at Raffaele Italian Restaurant...got my favorite item off the menu for dinner (chicken parm...yum!)...I made it to Eastern NC for my sister-in-law's bridal shower and then back to West End NC for a wedding (same day, folks...same...day!)...I visited with my family...my sunglasses were hijacked by my granny at the nursing home (see previous post)...we celebrated Vito and Frank's birthdays...I went angel bombing with Amy's mom...we visited with one of my closest friends from high school in Charleston SC and I met her son Maylon for the first time... and we made it back to Florida safely. Whew!
Did I update the final pics from my May series or the new pieces in the June series? Naw. But I did make art...every single day, and I am proud of myself for making the commitment to do my art, no matter how crazy life gets.
